It has been advising on giving at Ramadan since 2011.The Commission has published several steps for people to take to check before they give, to ensure their zakat goes where it is intended this Ramadan, which gets underway today.£100m giving during RamadanThe Muslim Charities Forum estimates that Muslims across Britain donate around £100m during Ramadan. The top three causes that benefit from zakat are reported to be disaster relief, children and education.Monowara Gani, Director of Operations at the Muslim Charities Forum said: “We know that Muslims in Britain take their zakat duties very seriously and are enormously generous in their charitable giving, especially at Ramadan. Around £100m is donated each year during Ramadan across Britain. We at MCF see first-hand the difference that generosity makes. That’s why we are endorsing the Commission’s campaign and encouraging Muslims [in the UK] to check before they give to ensure you are giving to a genuine registered charity and that your zakat is going where it is intended.”How to give safelyThe Charity Commission advises: Advertisement Howard Lake | 26 May 2017 | News before giving, check for a charity registration number. You can verify this at gov.ukbe more cautious about people collecting for general charitable causes, such as ‘for sick children’ – make sure you’re giving to a genuine registered charity when approached by collectors, check whether they are wearing a proper ID badge and that any collection tin is sealed and undamagedif in doubt, ask the collector for more information – a genuine fundraiser should be happy to answer questions and explain more about the work of the charitynever feel under pressure by a fundraiser into making a donation immediatelybe careful when responding to emails or clicking links within them. Don’t “click-through” from suspicious-looking emails. If you want to donate online, type in the charity’s website address from your homepage.    112 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5last_img read more
